Helena Bonham-Carter. She's had an interesting career from corset-bound Merchant-Ivory films to the Harry Potter series. She's also proven herself to be one of Britain's most talented actresses.
Her performance in Conversations with Other Women remains to be one of the best performances of the decade to me; perfectly felt and pitched at every level.
And just as an example of her career, her next roles include:
- Bellatrix Lestrange in the last two Potter films.
- Author Enid Blyton in a BBC TV movie.
- The Red Queen in Alice in Wonderland.
- Queen Elizabeth in a film about King George VI.
For a delightful lady and a delightful faag.
